GRID Alternatives is a non-profit organization that makes renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities. We bring together community partners, volunteers, and job trainees to implement solar power and energy efficiency for low-income families; providing energy cost savings, valuable hands-on experience, and a source of clean, local energy that benefits us all. GRID Alternatives has nine offices in California, Colorado, and New York.
To date we have installed nearly 4,000 solar systems with over 15,000 volunteer and job trainees. These installs have allowed for $110 million in direct savings to families and preventing over 340,000 tons of green house gas emissions over the systems lifespans.
